He who laughs last laughs best, unless he doesn't finish laughing before the funeral starts. Empty your chuckle reservoirs in an appropriate setting with today's GrouponLive deal: for $20, you get a comedy night for four at the Galway Hooker Pub and The Comedy Zone Lake Norman, a combined Irish restaurant and comedy club located in Cornelius (up to a $48 total value). The comedy night includes:
- Four tickets to any show (a $10 value each)
- An appetizer of spinach and artichoke dip (up to an $8 value)
The Galway Hooker Pub and The Comedy Zone fuse an authentic Irish pub, hearty homespun cuisine, and a rotating stage of renowned jesters to create a comfortable arena for both comedy and consumption. Sate a laugh-starved belly with one of a bevy of shows, including appearances by Tony Boswell (June 12–26), who is a founding member of The Department of Works Comedy Ensemble with Andy Dick and regularly muses on sobriety, bad haircuts, and arguments with the opposite sex. Funnyman Cee Jay (June 19), known for his appearances on BET’s ComicView and Showtime at the Apollo, awakens condors sleeping in the rafters with his infectious energy and high-volume outbursts. During the show, guests can dig into Chef Steve Jordan's appetizer of spinach and artichoke dip, a baked dish containing four cheeses, fresh spinach, and artichokes served alongside warm tortilla chips.
Irish architects constructed the Galway Hooker's authentic Irish pub decor piece by piece overseas and then shipped it to its current roost near Lake Norman, making the place more authentically Irish than an Aran sweater wrapped in an Aran sweater. Add the atmosphere to the attentive service and eclectic humorists, and you’ve got an ideal place for a lighthearted date night or cold-hearted screaming tournament.
Though Galway Hooker Pub and The Comedy Zone Lake Norman sometimes feature a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
